This was our first time staying overnight on Catalina Island. We certainly lucked out by booking the Vista Del Mar Hotel. Great room, great service and great location. The staff was very helpful getting us into our room early in the day so we could go off and explore the island right away. We will definitely be back again!

My husband and I stayed here the last week of October. We had a very romantic time. The rooms are amazing, just like the photos on the web page. Beautiful. The bed is very comfortable and I love the fireplace, a nice added touch. We enjoyed our breakfast and coffee on the beautiful balcony. This was a favorite spot as...

My husband and I went out to Catalina for a getaway last December and fell in love with Hotel Vista Del Mar. The rooms are cozy! Although they are small (some of them at least) they are beautifully decorated and so romantic. You have your own private fireplace and the beds are super comfortable. The staff was very sweet and...

My boyfriend and I just came back home from visiting Catalina Island and staying at the Hotel Vista Del Mar. We loved it! We had never been to Catalina Island so a great location to explore the Avalon was important. When we arrived on the Catalina Express it was clear that we selected the right hotel. It was literally a...

We loved this hotel! Finding it on the internet, we were happy to see it was even better than we expected. We opted out of the balcony view and to our surprise they have 2 bistro tables & chairs in the lobby balcony overlooking the beautiful views. Was so nice to have a drink & chat with other guests or...

Beautiful little hotel right by the shore. Balcony views are lovely to sit by and relax. Room was sufficient clean and fireplace was an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again. A little gem in Catalina

Very nice open design, balcony overlooking the sea front. Very nice rooms that feel like mini suites and great service. Breakfast is very pleasant and there are milk and cookies at night. The location is central, 3rd floors feels great view wise.

Vista Del Mar is the destination hotel for Avalon. An easy walk from the Ferry and perfect location in town to restaurants, shops, beach. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, nice amenities, and very quiet, We didn't hear the other guests nor the people on the street. (Cars & golfcarts aren't allowed in this area.) This was a very beautiful...
